HOW MUCH IS TOO MUCH?
It depends on who you’re asking.
I don’t know if Kent wrote this sketch, but I thought it was so funny, and for me, even though it sends up the pretentiousness of the homeowner (actually renter), it did make me think about value when painting or furnishing a home. And apparently, the folks at Farrow & Ball were thrilled with the sketch (see here). Comedy aside, I do believe if you can afford it, it IS worth it to spend more to achieve the results you want.
Below are several examples of our interior make-overs using Farrow & Ball paint colouurs (which we have been carrying samples of for 20 years).
We love Farrow & Ball (as well as Benjamin Moore). Wanda Furman, who does frequent Hammertown color consultations, is a huge fan of F&B paint. It really is worth the extra money. And it is true, the paint does have more pigment. I painted the Hammertown Kitchen over 8 years ago and it still looks great.
Come visit the Gatehouse as well to see examples of F&B paint.
In my own kitchen I didn’t want white cabinets. I wanted a color that would have more depth than what was on the wall and trim. I wanted the cabinets to have some definition from the walls but not be too dark. F&B’s Dropcloth was the answer!
As I’ve said again and again…your house gets added value with the right choice of colors and/or colouuurs 🙂 and we can help you make good choices.
